BACKGROUND

In December 2010, CCAT lent their Mobile Energy Operations Wagon (MEOW) V1 to a local eco-hostel. While away from the CCAT house, the MEOW was not properly locked and stowed at night; the 720 W photovoltaic (PV) trailer was subsequently stolen and vandalized. Some days after the burglary, CCAT received a call from the local police who said they had found the MEOW V1 abandoned on the side of a nearby highway. It turns out that the vandals had broken the hitch lock, attached the trailer to their own vehicle, drove it miles away where they could remove all the component of value
